NIKE78

It's good to see the new NIKE78 website online... I had the pleasure of working with the team at Sennep to create Project AMARIX. We were invited to get involved by Paul Jenkins who originally launched NIKE78 on May 30th 2010.

78 creatives were asked to challenge the function of a pair of Nike shoes including ourselves, Bompas & Parr (image above), Matt Dent and Wieden+Kennedy to name a few.

Over the next 78 days each of the projects will be showcased on the @NIKE78 Twitter account.

Instajournal

I've been looking for a good use for Tumblr for a while... I occasionally update this blog with things I like, most of the time reblogging from elsewhere. I wanted a place to upload original content so using Instajournal made a lot of sense. I've got quite into Instagram recently but a good way to view your photographs in a desktop browser was missing.

Instajournal simply uses an ifttt recipe and a custom Tumblr theme (created by Mark Boyce) to do the job.
 
Here's mine barriebloor.tumblr.com

There's some more examples over at instaaaa.tumblr.com

I was pleased to see one of my favourite Instagramers using it clickonthings.tumblr.com — Arron Bleasdale.

OLO game

We're getting ready to launch a new version of OLO game. The new features include a fresh new design, enhanced gameplay, improved physics, sound, four player and online multi-player.

Check out www.ologame.com for more information and to watch the teaser video.

The HTML5 Web App version of the game is up for a Webby Award. It's the last day to cast your vote, and it looks like it's going to run down to the wire... Every vote counts — www.pv.webbyawards.com/ballot/88

Damien Hirst | Tate Modern


Looking forward to this... Damien Hirst exhibition, Tate Modern, 4 April – 9 September 2012. "This will be the first substantial survey of his work in a British institution and will bring together key works from over twenty years. The exhibition will include iconic sculptures from his Natural History series, including The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living 1991, in which he suspended a shark in formaldehyde. Also included will be vitrines such as A Thousand Years from 1990, medicine cabinets, pill cabinets and instrument cabinets in addition to seminal paintings made throughout his career using butterflies and flies as well as spots and spins. The two-part installation In and Out of Love, not shown in its entirety since its creation in 1991 and Pharmacy 1992 will be among the highlights of the exhibition."

Duck Soup | Soho (LDN)


"In restaurants the strength of the creator’s personality now seems to distinguish those places I find most appealing from the others."

NIKE78 | Project AMARIX


We've been having some fun with HTML5 audio and working with NIKE78 to make a trainer talk. As a part of a wider project, where 78 designers and creatives were asked to challenge the function of a pair of Nike's, we used some code, a text to speech engine, a wig and some other stuff to create Project AMARIX.
